What we like about this property...
"Such a cosy cottage . Well placed for local walks , swimming in the sea , fish and chips and no need for the car. So much on the doorstep. Lovely wood burning stove."
"We have just returned from a week's stay at Seagull Barn in Boscastle. The cottage, its location and the weather were great and we spent our time with long coastal walks and excursions to Padstow, Port Isaac, Polzeath and the nearby Tintagel..."
What we love about the area...
Boscastle is a spectacular Elizabethan harbour designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. The village has shops, pubs, restaurants and a visitor’s centre, but please note it is a long steep walk down from the cottage. However, you can take the car and park at the bottom should you not fancy the climb back. Historic Tintagel is only 3 miles away, while Bude (20 minutes by car) offers all the desired seaside attractions including surfing.
In the other direction you are only 20 minutes from Polzeath, one of Cornwall’s most popular family beaches – again another favourite with the surfers and body boarders and there are plenty of places to hire a wet suit in the chillier months. The North Cornwall Coast path is not too far away and nearby you can enjoy, seal-spotting, bird watching, coarse and sea fishing and horse riding.
